Caution: Editors at work.  This help article is a work in progress and so may not be ready for public viewing, and content can change at any time. You can help by contributing to it and discussing on its talk page.


These are the moderators/administrators of the Chewiki.

Sysop Tools

Sysops have extra tools which are not available to regular editors. They are described below.

Blocking of Users

Vandalism and spam (such as replacing/deleting text in pages or adding links to random sites) will not be accepted. If one vandalizes, they will receive a temporary block. If a user vandalizes repeatedly or is clearly a spambot, they will be blocked permanently from Chewiki. One can also be blocked if they refuse to follow rules or if they generally aren't helping make the wiki better (i.e. making a ton of useless articles).

Protecting Pages

Pages will be locked to prevent editing in order to prevent vandalism of frequently visited pages, templates, and categories. Pages may also be protected to resolve edit wars. If you want to request changes to a protected page, please do so in the respective Talk Page for the article.

Deleting Pages/Files

As noted above, deletion of articles is usually reserved for obvious no good articles. If you think an article up for deletion should be saved, improve it.

Pages and files will be deleted immediately for the following reasons.

  • A blank page
  • A duplicated page/file
  • Spam
  • Other violations of site rules. (Porn, etc...)

Upload new versions of files directly

Sysops can replace files with newer versons. If you want a file to be replaced, put {{requestchange}} on the file page. Then, give a summary of what changes are to be made on the file's talk page.


This automatically undoes a recent editor's changes to a page. For example, if User:John McEnroe made a bunch of unproductive changes to Dr. Robotnik's page, a sysop can revert all of his edits at once. (Note: Please be careful when using this function. It should only be done to revert obviously bad changes. If only one edit by the user is bad, use "undo" instead. In addition, an explanation cannot be added since pressing "rollback" reverts instantly.)
